Scioto-348 Closure This Weekend
Route to be closed at 7 p.m. tonight
Chillicothe (Friday, April 11, 2014)As part of a major bridge rehabilitation project, the Scioto River Bridge on S.R. 348, located immediately east of S.R. 104 at Lucasville, will be closed this weekend for contractors to set final traffic controls that will be used during construction.
The closure will go into effect at 7 p.m. tonight, April 11, and continue until approximately 6 a.m. Monday, April 14. While the route is closed, traffic will be detoured via S.R. 104 North to S.R. 32 East to U.S. 23 South.
The entire project calls for rehabilitating the four-span structure by replacing the deck, approach slabs and roadway approaches. Throughout most construction, S.R. 348 will be reduced to one lane, and traffic will be maintained with traffic signals.
Shelly and Sands was awarded a contract for approximately $2.6 million, and the project is anticipated to be completed in late fall.
